I would think this may not be Chatham as, no drydock had two entrances, and the east locks are only as wide as the caisson, the west lock which was also caissoned and had no steps, it may just be artistic licence

I have just found a pic of this model that I took in the Science Museum in London in 2007.

The model was made in the Convict Prison during construction of the basin by the same convicts 1870.
